Bombyx mori cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus (BmCPV) is one of the most important pathogens of silkworm. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been demonstrated to play key roles in regulating host-pathogen interaction. However, there are limited reports on the miRNAs expression profiles during insect pathogen challenges. In this study, four small RNA libraries from BmCPV-infected midgut of silkworm at 72 h post-inoculation and 96 h post-inoculation and their corresponding control midguts were constructed and deep sequenced. A total of 316 known miRNAs (including miRNA*) and 90 novel miRNAs were identified. Fifty-eight miRNAs displayed significant differential expression between the infected and normal midgut (P value < = 0.01 and fold change > = 2.0 or < = 0.5), among which ten differentially expressed miRNA were validated by qRT-PCR method. Further bioinformatics analysis of predicted target genes of differentially expressed miRNAs showed that the miRNA targets were involved in stimulus and immune system process in silkworm. © 2013 Wu et al.

As the most important food plant for sericultural industry, mulberry trees have to suffer from a wide range of abiotic and biotic stresses, such as drought and high salinity. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been proved to play important roles in abiotic stresses regulation in many plants. However, there are seldom reports on the miRNAs expression profiles upon abiotic challenges in mulberry. In this study, three small RNA libraries from mulberry leaf tissue with or without drought or salt treatment were constructed and deep sequenced. Total of 48 conserved miRNAs (including miRNA*) and 162 novel miRNAs were identified (processing precision value. >. 0.1). A total of 270 and 1963 target genes were predicted for conserved miRNAs and novel miRNAs, respectively. 13 differentially expressed miRNAs were detected under drought or salt stresses by deep sequencing and qRT-PCR. 5' RLM-RACE validated Morus 013341 to be the target gene of miR-395a. Our results provided initial clue to further study molecular mechanism on abiotic stresses regulation in mulberry. © 2015 Elsevier Masson SAS.
